Sacked Out (I wish)!

Saturday, and I thought I would be just like Tommy T., all sacked out sleeping, resting, dreaming, but, "No." At 3:00 a.m. I am awake! It is because we spent all day yesterday with the new high school principal discussing dress code, cell phone, food and drink, duties, deadlines, PDAS (teacher evaluation), and I can't even think of the rest, and we are not done! It is hard to break in a new principal, but after we get in the groove it will be alright (it always is). We went to Cluster In Service in Odessa, and got to hear a very inspirational teacher from Atlanta talk about helping found the Ron Clark Academy, a very successful private school in one of the toughest parts of Atlanta. The Academy is giving a teacher award, and the deadline is September 1, so if you know of a teacher you want to submit, you need to go to and fill out the paper work. Hurry! Today, I am going to do the washing and ironing, straighten up around the house a little, and then go live at school the rest of the day. I will let you know how the first day goes.
I also want to bless one of my former students, who lived next door to me last year. She is off to college, now, and I pray that she will go with God every step of the way. Stay the course, Lauren! I am proud of you.


  1. Hello, just leaving you a comment as I've so enjoyed looking around your site and reading your lovely posts. Great pictures too !

    Thank so much for sharing them and I hope you have a fab weekend (well, the rest of it anyway...)!

    Best wishes to you

  2. You make me homesick for school! I took my step-kids in to MC to register on Thursday, the oldest one to my old school. I'm glad I'm home with my kids, but all this school business is making me miss the old job a little bit! Hope you have a great day, and have fun breaking in the new principal!

  3. Rosie,
    This too shall pass. Another day, another dollar. Take a deep breath and enjoy! cactus
